To Be Successful You Have To Try



What I like about this quote is that in order t.o achieve something you must believe in yourself.

Once you start, your intentions motivate you t.o take action and later on t.o keep pushing yourself t.o succeed. Your dream becomes less of a dream and turns more into reality.

Think about it. How would you accomplish something if you didn't at least try?

There really is no sure formula for success. It can be as unique as those attempting t.o be. There are lots of examples from business, entertainment, science, medicine and sports. Here are a few examples of those who were not successful at first but kept going:

Harland David Sanders:
Better known as Colonel Sanders of Kentucky Fried Chicken fame, Sanders had a hard time selling his chicken at first. In fact, his famous secret chicken recipe was rejected one thousand and times before a restaurant accepted it.

Thomas Edison
In his early , teachers told Edison he was “too t.o learn anything.” Work was no better, as he was fired from his first jobs for not being productive enough. Even as an inventor, Edison made one thousand unsuccessful attempts at inventing the light bulb. Of course, all those unsuccessful attempts finally resulted in the design that worked.

Fred Astaire
In his first screen test, the testing director of MGM noted that Astaire, “Can’t act. Can’t sing. Slightly bald. Can dance a little.” Astaire went on t.o become an incredibly successful actor, singer and dancer. He kept that note in his Beverly Hills home t.o remind him of where he came from.

Babe Ruth
You probably know Babe Ruth because of his home run record during his career, but along with all those home runs, for decades he held the record for strikeouts. When asked about this, he simply said, “Every strike brings me closer t.o the next home run.”

What have you tried that you weren't great at doing the first time?
For me, it was public speaking. I hated it to the extent I would get physically sick. However, I knew it was something I needed to overcome. In my corporate job, I went on to become a certified facilitator and taught hundreds of employees.

It is a great quote as we have to keep trying until we reach the success to where we want to be. Some great examples of people who kept trying until they reached the level of success that made them happy, not to mention the whole world.

I hope you enjoy the rest of your Thursday..

Seduce the mind and see what a wonderful adventure the body will take you on..

Impressive reminders that perseverance succeeds.
I should spend less time on THIS site, and I might. 😶
In the corporate world, I always managed to squeeze myself into a position where I was under-qualified.

It's fun to challenge your limits, especially when the alternative is 'bland'.
I'd rather go out in a fricken explosive blaze. 😮 ❗ ❗
Replete with those guards who watch, and monitor, your cardboard box.... as you trudge out.
Fuck all of them... No regrets!

lol... 😊 They didn't all end up like that. It's about ACTING like you belong, and faking it until you make it.

In addition to trying and failing is constantly practicing. (of course it depends on what you are trying to do.) But generally speaking.

A drummer that I like, his name is Bernard "Pretty" Purdie, said something along the lines of "you gotta love to practice"

The only things I enjoy to practice are drawing and photography.
And I still love it!.
Which btw, when I first started with photography, I ruined so many rolls of film.

There are lots of great stories of people who didn't succeed at first. They kept holding onto their dream and went on to amazing success. Happy Friday

I can relate to your comment about photography. I skipped the camera phase and went straight to using my iPhone. It's so easy to delete what doesn't turn out to my satisfaction

Rarely success comes with the first attempt. Persistence and knowing it's OK to fail are key factors. Thank you for dropping by and sharing your perspective.

I like your comment, "It's about ACTING like you belong, and faking it until you make it." I see how applicable that would be in a variety of settings and would be fodder for some great stories.

Didn't Wayne Gretzky say that? The sentiment is real and applicable beyond sports.
